They have an interesting topography, ranging from the wild and rugged in the northeast to fertile plains  of alluvial  soil in the southwest. These two districts are separated  from  each other by the magnificent Mahi river. This region was the stronghold of the Bhils and had its own unique lifestyles.

About Mewar
 Mewar is a region of south-central Rajasthan state in western India. It includes the present-day districts of Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Rajsamand and Udaipur. The region was for centuries a Rajput kingdom that later became a princely state under the British. It was ruled by the Guhilot and Sisodia dynasties for over 1200 years.

The northern part of Mewar is a gently sloping plain, drained by the Banas River and its tributaries, which empty northwest into the Chambal River, a tributary of the Yamuna River. The southern part of the region is hilly, and marks the divide between the Banas and its tributaries and the headwaters of the Sabarmati and Mahi rivers and their tributaries, which drain south into the Gulf of Cambay through Gujarat state. The Aravalli Range forms the northwestern boundary of the region, composed mostly of sedimentary rocks, like marble and Kota stone, which has traditionally been an important construction material.
The Marwar region lies across the Aravalli Range to the northwest, Gujarat and the Vagad region of Rajasthan lie to the south, the Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh state lies to the southeast, and the Hadoti region of Rajasthan lies to the east.

All About The Trust - A Bird-Eye View


Constructed in 1975 with funds raised from the public and situated on land within the precincts of the Mahatma Gandhi Government Hospital in the district headquarter town of Banswara in the southwest corner of the state of Rajasthan, India.

The building was to be used as a dharmshala to house patients and attendants arriving for treatment at the hospital.

Vagad Sewa Sansthan Trust (Dharmshala)

The origianl purpose of the dharmshala was not achieved and the building became derelict. So in 2002 a public trust was formed to ensure the implementation of a functioning dharmshala which would provide housing, toilet, bathing and meals (all free of cost) to patients and attendents alike. So far all funding required has been raised from public donations.

The legal framework was completed on 19/09/02 by the founder trustee Shri Bharat Singh Ji (then Additional Superintendant of Police, Banswara). Activities commenced from 10/10/02 and all administrative work has been done under Shri Bharat Singh Ji's guidance.
